by archysport

Jan-Lennard Struff missed the quarter-finals of the French Open despite another strong performance. The 31-year-old tennis professional lost on Monday in Paris in the round of 16 against the Argentinian Diego Schwartzman 6: 7 (9:11), 4: 6, 5: 7 and thus missed the first jump into the quarter-finals in a Grand Slam tournament .

Especially in the first set, Struff missed too many chances and missed a total of seven set balls. After 3:02 hours, number ten seeded Schwartzman, who made it to the semi-finals in Paris last year, made progress with the first match point. This means that there is only one German in Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals. The German number one will meet the Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina on Tuesday.

Struff caught a rocket launch on the Suzanne-Lenglen Court. The German number two took Schwartzman’s service twice and quickly moved away to 5: 1. But then the Warsteiner could not use his many chances. When the score was 5: 1, he awarded the first four set balls. Schwartzman now improved tremendously, Struff, on the other hand, had problems with the serve, which had previously come with a high percentage. The Davis Cup player missed two more set balls, so the decision had to be made in the first round in the tie-break.

Struff’s strength diminishes

There, too, Struff continued to play strong tennis, both players offered the spectators a thrilling exchange of blows. Struff struggled as best he could, destroyed three set balls by the Argentine and had one more chance of winning the first section. But after 66 minutes Schwartzman made the 11: 9 in the tiebreak perfect in the fourth attempt. The fact that the tenth in the world rankings got the first set with a lucky net scooter matched Struff’s bad luck that day.
